5.1 Packaging. For acquisition purposes, the packaging requirements shall be as specified in the contract or order (see 6.2).
When actual packaging of materiel is to be performed by DoD or in-house contractor personnel, these personnel need to contact
the responsible packaging activity to ascertain packaging requirements. Packaging requirements are maintained by the
Inventory Control Point's packaging activity within the Military Service or Defense Agency, or within the military service's system
commands. Packaging data retrieval is available from the managing Military Department's or Defense Agency's automated
packaging files, CD-ROM products, or by contacting the responsible packaging activity.
(This section contains information of a general or explanatory nature that may be helpful, but is not mandatory.)
6.1 Intended use. Microcircuits conforming to this specification are intended for original equipment design application and
logistic support of existing equipment.
6.2 Acquisition requirements. Acquisition documents should specify the following:
Title, number, and date of the specification.
PIN and compliance identifier, if applicable (see 1.2).
Requirements for delivery of one copy of the conformance inspection data pertinent to the device inspection lot to be
supplied with each shipment by the device manufacturer, if applicable.
Requirements for certificate of compliance, if applicable.
Requirements for notification of change of product or process to contracting activity in addition to notification to the

action and reporting of results, if applicable.
Requirements for product assurance and radiation hardness assurance options.

Packaging requirements (see 5.1).
6.3 Superseding information. The requirements of MIL-M-38510 have been superseded to take advantage of the available
Qualified Manufacturer Listing (QML) system provided by MIL-PRF-38535. Previous references to MIL-M-38510 in this
document have been replaced by appropriate references to MIL-PRF-38535. All technical requirements now consist of this
specification and MIL-PRF-38535. The MIL-M-38510 specification sheet number and PIN have been retained to avoid
adversely impacting existing government logistics systems and contractors parts lists.
6.4 Qualification. With respect to products requiring qualification, awards will be made only for products which are, at the
time of award of contract, qualified for inclusion in Qualified Manufacturers List QML-38535 whether or not such products have
actually been so listed by that date. The attention of the contractors is called to these requirements, and manufacturers are
urged to arrange to have the products that they propose to offer to the Federal Government tested for qualification in order that
they may be eligible to be awarded contracts or purchase orders for the products covered by this specification. Information
pertaining to qualification of products may be obtained from DSCC-VQ, 3990 E. Broad Street, Columbus, Ohio 43123-1199.
